I have found that it isn't such a matter of depth on green as it is to what the structure is under that depth and what there is for forage if you have an aqua-vu use it to find some structure that can hold walleyes IE weeds lines, gravel, rocks, mud edges etc. if you don't have an aqua-vu use a vexilar and yes 27-29 is a good place to start. Move around and find EM!! grin.gif

yeah i found a real steep drop but i dont know if the drop offs are more of what i should be looking for or if i should be searching more in the flats and if so how deep? I do have an aqua view and it is amazing to see what the bottom actually looks like compared to what you think. I am going to be moving the house before it gets cold and was just hopin for a little help. Thanks schneids! grin.gif

on saturday morning the bottom appeared to be sand with a few small chunks of gravel here and there...

I moved in the afternoon to a spot with some bigger rocks and gravel and we had better action, albeit just perch. Having a camera really opens up some doors for ice fishing at least, but its pretty easy to become too reliant on the camera and spend the whole time just watching for fish to swim through instead of moving around, switching presentations, etc.

We experienced similar success (if you'd call it that) in a variety of depths we fished on Diamond this past weekend. I don't think anyone had much luck so hopefully it improves in the coming weeks.
